propane feed

Not sure what the problem is- have dual tanks on my 2014 Flagstaff ultra lite 5 'er -- ran out of propane on outter tank, switched to inside tank no propane but tank is full. unhooked it and replaced the empty one with it on the outer side and it works fine. should not be a regulator problem as they both go through it- tank control lever? pigtail stopped up? what?

When you ran out, sis you have to open the cylinder valve on the inside tank? If so, you may have opened it too fast and it activated the excess flow valve and shut off the flow. Then when you switched the cylinders it released and worked correctly.

If it was already open and didn't work, it could be a switch over regulator not switching.

I have the same issue on my 2015 model. I didn't realize there was a problem until after the warranty expired, so I've just been swapping the tanks. I need to troubleshoot further, but just don't run through the bottles that fast, so it hasn't been a big issue. I really think the problem may be in the pigtail not seating correctly when threaded onto the bottle and not allowing the gas to flow.
